, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, republican strategist mike murphy, and nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. with the president's national security team under fire over the petraeus resignation and the benghazi attacks, the president arrived on the world stage this morning for a summit in east asia, and he's got new worries on his mind about the prospect of a war in the middle east as israel and palestinian militants get closer to the brink this weekend. israel expanding its air assault against hamas and palestinian militants continuing to fire rockets into civilian areas of southern israel. that's where i want to begin this morning. i've got nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. who better to have to discuss this. tom, as the two sides get closer to the brink, based on your experience and reporting, wh
and working hard for -- and playing by the rules as bill clinton liked to say, if you can't speak to both of those, you're not going to be able to be a winner or have a governing majority that is stable in this country. it's not possible. >> howard, the great swing voters, reagan democrats, more conservative, many catholics, but just middle of the road people, i'm not sure they're all capitalists and tie coopycoonst. they're general pie peoplely people that go to work and come off the shift. >> there's two levels. one is that not everybody cares about entrepreneurialism and the abstract theories of joseph, et cetera. and the other part of it is cultural. people want to be left alone to live their lives in relative security with values that they appreciate. and mitt romney, who thought the whole campaign was just about the unemployment rate even failed at that because he didn't connect up the entrepreneurial spirit with how it might help the lives of those work a day people. that's something ron 23458d nald reagan and jack kemp at least figured out how to sell a generation ago. >> i guess
, bill clinton won big. you know who else won big? me. when i went back in january of 1997, was i willing to work any more after bill clinton won the election than before? no. a lot of republicans that won an election in the house as well. i just say that to say the president can go ahead -- and to follow up on david, he could do brinkmanship if he wants. a lot of these guys have spent the last couple years in the house standing up to the president going after him aggressively. he got re-elected. >> and the government's organized the same way. >> yes. if the president wants to engage in brinksmanship, he can. >> the message they took from their own re-election in their district was go back to washington and fight the president. don't cooperate with what he wants to do. >> right. >> all right, josh -- >> that's what i'm saying, brinksmanship seems to be short-sighted right now. i think instead of flying all across the country and spending taxpayer dollars on air force one and your security detail, could you just try inviting people over to the white house? >> he's doing that, too. >> and w
few jobs left out there for $22 an hour. i have a suggestion. bill clinton and david stockton agree on a solution for the entitlement program. they said to do away with the payroll tax and fund the medicare and pension system with a national sales tax, would eliminate the advantage that europe and the other nations have over us because they don't charge that on the exports. guest: many economists agree with your last point. the payroll tax cut is regressive and is a disincentive to save. many economists would agree with your point. bill clinton and david stockton can agree on something. they are more sensible than some in the political arena today. the point about dependency on public assistance -- i have not looked at this recently. i received permission to engage welfare reform. we meet the whole process much more work related. you have to participate in job- training. when a job came open, you had to take it. welfare rolls move down substantially. i think that is how the process should work. there should be a temporary way station, back to being a taxpayer once again. that is my
of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. in fact, this situation of a divided government has only two possible outcomes -- action based upon good faith compromise or no action resulting from political dead lock, and in my position, the latter, is not acceptable to the people of maine and to the people of the united states. we must find a way to act, because many of the problems before us, the debt and deficit is probably the best example, have a time fuse. the longer we avoid acting, the worse they get. in this case, no decision is itself a decision, and it is almost undoubtedly the wrong decision. the challenges before us are too great and the stakes are too high to allow partisan differents to keep us from finding common ground even on the most difficult issues, and i hope that in a small way, in a small way i may be able to act as a brim between the parties, an on -- bridge between the parties, an honest broker to help nudge us toward solutions. i talked to more than a dozen senators of both parties in the past three days and have been impressed
the republicans don't agree to raise the top back to where they were when bill clinton left office going over the fiscal cliff? >> i don't see a realistic way to solve this without a recognition. let's see the positive side. it's encouraging use in the leadership recognize we are going to have to generate and that's a good recognition, but you know, we're just at the beginning. we will see how that goes. i agree this is going to be tough. i know the lack of clarity on the resolution is going to be a burden and cause some uncertainty but we have to go through because we are going to govern this country better if we are going to find a better way to make sure we are supporting things that will improve the long-term growth in the country we have to figure out a way to resolve the current divide on these basic questions about the long-term. i think that is worth trying to do. >> well, as you have said and the president said we have to both raise taxes and restrain spending. the president's proposal so far on medicare has been largely limited to the provider side. is the president going to leave h
hired abe lowell as an attorney, who used to represent president bill clinton, john edwards and jack abramoff. judy smith has also been hired by jill kelley. she's a crisis manager. and you may remember smith from her crisis management representation of mon ica lewinsky. heavy hitters to represent the family as this family is expecting a barrage of media questions in the next days to weeks as this scandal unfolds. carol? >> wow, i'm still getting over that house. that's something else. jason lanning, bay news 9. thank you so much. paula broadwell's biography of general david petraeus is one hot seller. no kidding. it climbed out of the cellar to the 111th spot on the best seller list. nothing like a besex scandal to promote a book, something she did not mention on her book tour. >> when i realized the opportunity i had to tell this message to present this portrait of military leadership, i'm not in love with david petraeus, but he is a great role model, values oriented, speaks the truth to power. >> you think this is the weirdest twist, you would be wrong. yes, there is word this mor
are it is the money to bring it down to make our akon and remove for word. >> what did bill clinton say? arithmetic. i like that moment that he was pointing out what numbers added up but to the democrats were chanting arithmetic. did just cannot be sound bites. those were real bills that passed. 62/75 boats -- boats. we got it done. on some of those bills after we got it done there was pressure on the house and the group of us supportive of the debt commission report we may not agree with everything but depending on the day 40 are 55 senators meeting off and on to push them through. >> there is a devotion. paul ryan said it is not their intention to raise tax rates. didn't want to agree to the tax hikes how will you work with republicans in the house? this is not what we will negotiate? there has been some change there and speaker boehner but up the olive branch that is the debt negotiations are all about. but look at the tax-cut issue as a major part of the solution and add that into other deductions it is a chunk of change. >> with the press conference . >> guest: i missed the meeting but they passe
. it is import how we get into the deficit situation. many viewers will remember when bill clinton left office this country had a surplus. we went to war in iran and afghanistan. bush and others decided not to pay for the war. that adds to the deficit. if you give a huge tax breaks, that adds to the deficit. if there is a recession, less revenue is coming in to the government. revenue is the lowest in six years. that is how we are where we are. we have to do this in a way that is fair, not on the backs of people that are working 60 or 70 hours a week and not on the backs of children by cutting their health insurance program and not on the backs of senior citizens. the struggle is to understand how we got to where we are and how do we go forward in reducing the deficit and creating jobs in this country. host: it was announced that there will be a caucus with the democrats. we see this headline in "the boston globe." what advice did you have for this fellow independent? guest: we have spoken a couple of times recently. essentially what he asked me about it is what is a like to function within th
clinton. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." first bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> good morning, mika. a lot of people off from school and work today. but if you're heading out, you need the umbrella in many states. it's just rain and falling temperatures. who's at risk and who needs the umbrella. detroit, your rain has begun. you'll have about four hours of it. same for cleveland and columbus eventu eventually. lexington, louisville, cincinnati, you're included. this cold front is pushing all the way down through the deep south with showers and storms now from nashville to tuscaloosa. eventually birmingham and montgomery. so the forecast also is going to include falling temperatures. we're very warm on the eastern half of the country, east of the mississippi. but look at the midwest. we are cold in minneapolis, denver, billings, kansas city, st. louis and even dallas and chicago are chilly this morning. that cold air is going to plunge to the east as we go throughout the day. so your monday forecast, one more nice, beautiful day fro
disproved. an election that dealt often content-free, in a curious way, if you think backk to bill clinton's speech at the democratic convention, that is exactly what it was. it is hard to imagine a single speech that more effectively moved the numbers on a very difficult divide. that tends to be set almost in concrete. it is unprecedented that one speaker in 50 minutes managed to move those numbers. that was the keynote speech not only for the convention but the campaign. it was not equal again by anyone. but it did not have to be. it weaker so after the election, we are being told new conventional wisdom. that debate did not matter. the fact of the matter is, at barack obama had another debate as bad as his first debate, we might be having a very different discussion. debates, for better or worse, produced the republican nominee. we were told that money and advertising are wildly exaggerated in their impact. but it had not been for mitt romney's money and carpet bombing of fizz opponent in the primaries, he would not have been nominated by a convention that never gave him it's hearty, ,
